The two-time Oscar winner will serve as the primary antagonist of the independent film directed by Gene Fallaize (Superman Requiem, Cain Hill). The film will continue production into early 2023 in London, with no official release date as of now.

“Follows British government’s Home Secretary Stella Simmons as she drives home one night whilst engaging in a secret love affair with the Prime Minister,” reads the official synopsis for the film. “One other man — played by Kevin Spacey — knows her secret, however, and has been badly affected by it, and he wants revenge on Stella for her part, so he plots to remotely-hijack her fully self-driving car and takes control of it, forcing her on a rampage through the streets of London, using the car she’s trapped in as a deadly weapon.

The news comes just a few weeks after it was announced that Spacey would be facing an additional seven sexual offense charges in the U.K., which itself came a month after a jury in New York found him not liable in a civil sexual misconduct trial.

Once heralded as a legendary actor, Spacey’s career came to a screeching halt in 2017 when he was accused of making sexual advances on then-14-year-old Anthony Rapp (an actor who appeared in a Broadway show with Spacey) in 1986. More allegations came forward following that, leading to Netflix cutting ties with Spacey on their planned film Gore, as well as removing him from the final season of the series House of Cards.
